Hornets handed United boss praise
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has leapt to the defence of Watford following their 2-1 win against the Hornets.
United managed to come out on top with a 2-1 victory at Old Trafford on Saturday, as Watford produced a resilient performance in the Norwegian manager's first game as permanent Red Devils boss.
Solskjaer was asked if he thought his team should be performing better against "a side like Watford" and the former Molde manager took exception to the question and was full of praise for Javi Gracia's side.
"Watford are a good team, they're playing in the semi-final of the FA Cup, they've got some very good players, play well on the counter attack as well," he told reporters.
"They had a couple more shots than us, I don't think you're giving them any true respect there, they're seventh in the league, or eighth in the league.
"Along with Wolves they're the best two teams apart from the top six.
"Of course you'd like to dominate games, but we weren't able to."
